Webster Reservoir Fishing Information
|Species||Rating||Size||Baits, Method, and Location|
|Crappie||Fair||7 to 17 inches||Did have reports of fish being caught off the North Breakwater and around the fish attractors. Jigs, small slab spoons, or minnows fished in or near the submerged cedar trees should produce. Also, heard of some fish being caught up in the coves and around the outlet gates using jigs and minnows under a bobber.|
|Walleye||Fair||14 to 26 inches||Did have fish reported being caught along the Dam, around the old swim beach (Little Sahara) and Old Marina Point using diving lures and night crawlers. Crankbait's have been the preferred equipment along the Dam and night crawlers on the old swim beach and Old Marina Point.|
|White Bass/Wiper||Good||8 to 24 inches||Have had reports of fish being caught on the point by the big gates, culvert below the Bait Shop and off Old Marina Point using jigs and rattle traps. Trolling diving lures has also been productive. They are chasing shad and can be seen busting the surface while feeding on the shad.|
|Catfish||Fair||12 to 30 inches||Did have reports of catfish being caught by the culvert below the bait shop, off the Unimproved launch area and around McCormick's bridge using shad and stink bait on the bottom. Would also try up to the west end of the lake using setlines.|
